Jerry sounds like he might have had a few too many beers in the hot South Florida sun the way he sings on that Dark Star. Check out the "searchlight casting" line. I also think the H2H sounds a bit out sync. Something that happens a few times in '69. I am not a musician either so i can't put my finger on it, but to me they just don't seem to be on the same page at times during this performance. I do listen to it as i think it has a certain grittiness that is unique and is a nice contrast to the sonic perfection of the late '73 shows that i have been digging of late.

The rumor ( liner notes in the RT set ) was that there was acid spiking going on .
The band could play under doses that would cripple most people, but It might have made some of the timing ( along with their own roughness ) a little unsteady . And listen to Weir trying to tell his "Yellow Dog Story"...
These shows a re a little "unwashed", but in a fun way . In the first half of 69, the shows could be, set list wise, a lot alike , so the differences of performance are especially welcome .

I think the monitors or something else with the sound was off in H2H, making it hard for the band, cuz you can hear Phil complain to Bear about it.
